Why Android Oatmeal should be the name of the next update

Our little Android robot buddy has been pigging out for years, snacking on the likes of lollipops, marshmallows, KitKat and more. And while it has recently discovered fancier desserts, like nougat, it’s time for an intervention.

Android O is an opportunity to turn a new leaf, to eat healthier, to stand for something that does the body good (and is devilishly tasty with a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon mixed in, too). It’s time to eat opt for something that gives you energy, not sap it. Oatmeal.

Going 30 mph on an electric bike in NYC is terrifyingly awesome

Going 28 miles-per-hour (45 kilometers-per-hour) on an electric bike is both one of the most frightening and exhilarating things I’ve ever done.

28 mph might sound like the average speed limit on most roads – or optimistic if you’re used to living on the busy streets of a metropolitan city like New York City. However, I wasn’t in a car shielded by a foot of metal, plush lining and crumple zones. Nope I was on a 65 pound, $10,000 (about £7,765, AU$16,230) Stromer ST2 S eBike wearing shorts without a helmet and less than a year of biking experience.

Elgato Stream Deck review: A streamer's best friend

Pro-grade equipment at a bargain price. That’s the reputation Elgato earned as first YouTube videos and then Twitch streaming took over video games.

Aukey 30000 PowerBank with Power Delivery review: A respectable upgrade

Note: The following is part of our roundup of USB-C battery packs. Go there for details on how we tested this device.

The Aukey 30000 Power Bank was last year’s top pick, despite a couple of flaws. Its price point, combined with Quick Charge (QC) 3.0 and a handy flashlight (as gimmicky as it may sound) were enough to propel it to the top.
